- To hide TrayCL dialog
press Esc, to activate it press a hotkey, usually Pause (you can
change the hotkey in Options->Advanced dialog).
Mode: press Ctrl-M or double-click TrayCL window to switch between Mini-Mode
and Normal mode. Note that while in Mini-Mode you can't access the menu.
- To insert file argument(s)
into a command line insert space in the end of a command and press dir
button (the chosen file will be placed after space).
can drag&drop files into TrayCL window. For example if you want
to edit a file with unregistered extension (like file_id.diz) with notepad,
invoke traycl, type notepad, press Space, and then drag&drop a file
into traycl. The full pathame of the file will appear as a parameter
to notepad command.
you can supply parameters to any alias/command. If you press Space after
the command, and then press 'Dir' button,(or type Alt-D), then the file
you choose will be inserted into traycl as a parameter (it will not
replace existing command).
- Use [down-arrow]
key to recall last command(s) from the history list, or press [alt+down
arrow] to view history. Pressing
Esc hides TrayCL without executing any command.
Invoke hotkey )To change invoke hotkey ([Pause])
go to Options->Set Invoke hotkey menu item.
supports nested aliases (aliases which make use of other aliases).
(Options->Advanced) AutoComplete - when this option is on (toggle it
in Options\Advanced dialog), TrayCL auto-guesses the commands you try
to enter. AutoComplete has 2 modes:
Normal mode - TrayCL tries to guess the text after amount of time
specified in delay field.
Smart mode - TrayCL tries to guess the text after amount of time
specified in delay field and if it determines that the string you've
entered so far is unique in the history list - the command
is auto-guessed immediately without any further delay.
Ability to change "dir" button default path - pressing dir button will
open file dialog in the user-specified directory. Default is "\".
- (Options->Show tray
icon) Ability to show/hide tray icon. If this option is unchecked the
tray icon is hidden and the program can be activated only by a hotkey.
completion - tries to complete the incompletely typed filenames. File
completion is activated by pressing TAB key. Example: typing "c:\pro"
and then pressing TAB will complete the string to "c:\"program
files"\". Note: If Traycl fails to find an unique filename
beginging with the letters from the input string, then the list of matching
filenames will be shown. You can then choose a filename from the list
by using arrow-up and arrow-down keys. If the input string doesn't contain
a ":" or "\\" characters, then TrayCL tries to complete the input string
as an alias name.
aliases: now multiple commands can be executed using single alias name.
Just add more commands to the alias list in the AddAlias dialog by pressing
launch via hotkey: each alias can now be assigned a hotkey (you can
set it in add/edit alias dialog). Note: alias doesn't have to have a
name if it has a hotkey.
EditAliases Hotkey) there's now a separate hotkey for invoking
traycl's Alias list. This comes handy if you don't want to use command
line, but just hotkeys. TrayCL doesn't assign this hotkey by default,
so first you must set this hotkey by going to Options->Set EditAliases
- If you want TrayCL to be loaded automatically
each time windows starts then check Options->Run On Startup menu item
(checked by default), if you want TrayCL to be hidden each time the
command is executed then check Options->Minimize Automatically menu
item (checked by default), if you want TrayCL window to stay visible
after Traycl starts, uncheck Options->Hide when started menu item.
Resizability: TrayCL window can now be expanded/resized horisontally.
To restore normal length use File->Restore size menu command or Ctrl-S.
Aliases) As requested, I added Import/Export Aliases feature. Aliases
can be exported to a file using File->Export Aliases menu command.
Afterwards ailases can be imported (restored) from a file using File->Import
Aliases menu command.
